What You Need To Know
Cueva de las Manos is the value label from Chakana, a young winery founded in 2001 by former telecommunications executive (and wine lover) Juan Pelizzati. Searching for work-life balance, Pelizzati doubled down on a huge, 700-acre estate in Luján de Cuyo, a high-altitude subzone of the Mendoza region that climbs the Andes foothills. The cooler temperatures of these mountain vineyards help grapes ripen slowly, with thicker skins, which leads to fresher, more structured wines. In this bottling, winemaker Liliana Iannizzotto combines smooth, spicy Malbec with Bonarda, a dark, lushly fruity variety that’s Argentina’s second-most popular red grape.
